“Great Food and Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

We hadn't been here for years. The meals were better than we expected. The scallop special was excellent. The scallops were large and prepared perfectly. The appetizers: sausage and peppers and the clam casino were excellent. The veal parm was also very good. Our server, Marhta, was knowledgeable and attentive. We had a great time and will go again. All the portions are ample. Too full to try desert.

“Exceeded Expectations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

We visited this restaurant several years ago and were not impressed at all. This is our first visit since they reopened. I ordered Veal Masala and it was fantastic. Kudos to the cook.

“Great veal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We were happy we had made reservations for our party of 6, since by 5:45 there were about 8 tables with 6 to 10 people, and the seating area was nearly filled.

The veal scaloppini was superb. Both the veal and chicken cardinal were excellent. The manicotti was delicious, with a portion large enough lunch leftover. The special of the day was shrimp, beef tips, & asparagus over penne with marinara sauce, which was also delicious and large. The house brand of Merlot wine was very good as well.

Service was exceptional.

“Visiting for business”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Nice atmosphere very warm and cozy. Waiter was knowledgeable and provided good recommendations for a new customer. Food was good quality, flavorful and large portions (could easily share). Will return when I am back in town.

“The Best Marsala Sauce Anywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Gabriella's has spoiled me. I never order anything with Marsala sauce anywhere anymore because I am always disappointed. Gabriella's has the best Marsala sauce anywhere. I am so happy that they reopened after the fire. We are never disappointed with the food here. The wine list is not all that great and the restaurant does get very loud. But the food is well worth the trip.
